At 19 years old, she married her high school sweetheart. She finished college, supported her husband in the Air Force, worked hard to make ends meet and settled down not far from where she grew up. Two children, a girl and a boy, her dream house and a minivan later, she became a devoted housewife, teacher and friend of her children. She transitioned to being a preacher’s wife. She prayed her children through the woes of adolescence and fell in love again with their spouses. She called them son and daughter. She was there for the birth of her grandchildren making crib bedding, rocking them to sleep and taking them on vacations.
